Today the bank of México released a new bimetallic coin. its characteristics are:
Face value: 20 pesos Diameter: 30 mm Weight: 12.67 gr Shape: dodecagonal Topic: 100 years since the death of General Emiliano Zapata Salazar Edge: Discontinuous reeded security features: Virtual image & micro-sized lettering
Note: despite coin has the date 2019 on the reverse it was actually minted this 2021. It has the date 2019 because the 100 years of the death of Zapata happened on april 10 1919.
Quote: I hope they issue a collector version with a silver center.
almost impossible however this year there will be 3 new coins made of sterling silver .999
Any idea how many were minted?
At this moment only 1 million, a low amount consider that it is a circulating coin. we do not know if Banco de México will order more coins to the Mexican mint.
Quote: ..that lettering doesn't look very micro to me. Fairly typical size for mottoes (though admittedly they're usually on ribbons). I'm pretty sure I've seen coins a century older with smaller lettering.
But neat coin!
I agree, it is too big to be a micro text, however the Mexican mint officially call it a microtext.
